In 2017, I have pledged to run 4 half marathons that sponsor St. Jude. My 1st half marathon is January 15th in Phoenix, AZ. The 2nd is April 29th in Nashville, TN. The 3rd is November 12, in Las Vegas, NV. My 4th half marathon is The St. Jude Marathon here in Memphis, December 2. I'm choosing to run for more than myself. I'm using my running to help save kids' lives by fundraising for St. Jude Children's Research Hospital as I train. I'm running for kids who might be too sick to run today, but who could one day be running alongside me because the money I raised helped find a cure for childhood cancer.
- Families never receive a bill from St. Jude for treatment, travel, housing or food -- because all a family should worry about is helping their child live.
- Treatments invented at St. Jude have helped push the overall childhood cancer survival rate from 20% to more than 80% since it opened more than 50 years ago. St. Jude won't stop until no child dies from cancer.
I pledged to raise $500. I plan to save and donate the $500 myself by December. If at any point in 2017 you feel that you could give a gift to support St. Jude and encourage me in my running, I would greatly appreciate any amount. Also I would love for you to join me in running at any of these events. Most of all, please remember these kids in your prayers.
In HIS grip,
